Pattern Toner Sheets with Deco Foils

Main

Hello!  I'm so excited to share with you a fun technique to use with your Deco Foils.  I created a series of patterned toner sheets.  They are simply 8.5 x 11 sheets that you can print with your laser printer or at your local office supply, then cut with your digital die cutter, punches, by hand or even use as background paper.  I recommend printing onto 110# white cardstock.

Now for the fun part!  Cut some fun shapes out of the toner sheet.  I used my Cricut Explore to cut these shapes, letters and numbers.

Grab your favorite color of Deco Foil, heat up your laminator and decide which shapes you'd like to laminate.

Using a piece of copy paper folded in half, lay your shapes down inside the folded paper with the pattern facing up, then apply the Deco Foil color side up, close the copy paper and run it through your laminator (make sure you laminator has been preheated and it nice and hot).
6Remove the foil (look at this fun negative!)
5Now stand back and admire your beautiful work.  How cool are these blue foiled shapes and letters!
The possibilities are endless!
